I will be attending the Goldschmidt meeting all week, and will talk about my work on mantle CO2 heterogeneity at 9am on Thursday.
The roles of Degassing and Mixing on Volatile-Trace Element Systematics: Implications for Global Carbon Budgets. (05g: Ampithéâtre Havane, Thursday 0900-0915).
Magma mixing has become an important process in understanding how the geochemical variability of primary mantle melts is expressed in erupted products. In this talk I will argue that mixing has been under appreciated in the interpretation of the datasets that underpin our understanding of CO2-distribution in the mantle, I will use a combination of simple models, existing datasets and new melt inclusion data from Iceland.
